Great Ideas to Keep the Kids Cool
Make Frozen Homemade Ice Pops
Making some home made frozen ice pops and keeping a steady supply of them going is my top tip for keeping the kids cool.
For an alternative to fruit juice, cut up fresh fruit and freeze in coconut water. And if you don’t have an ice pop mould, then easy alternatives are to freeze the yoghurt tubes or stick a popsicle stick in a yoghurt and freeze.
Get your child to help make ice paints, they will then enjoy making some cold art after the paints are ready.
This ice painting project from Easy Peasy and Fun uses different colours of food colouring to make coloured ice cubes that the kids can then “paint” with. Great for toddlers who might take a cheeky ‘taste test’ of their paints.
Keep the Suncream in the Fridge
Pop your sunscreen tubes/containers into the fridge. It’ll help cool the kids down when you go to apply it!
